Forever Young

Aubree is only 16 years old but has already had a rough life. When her older brother Jared dies from his battle with cancer, her whole world seems ruined. She starts really questioning what she wants to do with her future because she doesn't think she'll ever be able to sing again until Liam comes into her life. Can Liam help her get the courage to sing again or will she take a completely different road with someone else?


1. The Heartbreaking News

       I was on my way home from school with my best friend Ariana by my side when I recieved the phonecall.

"What? Okay I'll be there right away". I hung up my phone and told Ariana I had to go to the hospital. When I got there I saw Jared, holding hands with mom,dad standing close by.

"Aubree, come here please", Jared's weak voice requested.  I walked straight over and grabbed his free hand. I started to tear up.

"We'll let you two talk", my mom said. They left the room so it was only Jared and me.

"Aubree, I'm not gonna make it much longer, it's almost my time", he whispered. More and more tears ran down my face as he continued.

"Do you remeber the time we sat in the living room and sang? How happy we were to be singing together?"

"Yeah, Forever Young", I whispered back.

"I'll never forget that. I want you to remember me like that. Not having liver cancer, okay?" I couldn't keep my emotions inside. I just buried my head into his shoulder and kept promising I would. Jared and I were only two years apart and we always got along very well unlike our friends' and their siblings. We found out Jared had cancer on the sixth of June two years ago. The doctors and nurses always told us how good of a patient he was and how well he was doing so when I got the phonecall and talked to Jared, it really hit me. I eventually looked up into his bright blue eyes and started stroking his longer brown, flippy hair. He loved his hair, probably more than any of the few girls he ever dated.

"I love you Jared, so, so much. Please don't give up".

"I dont think it's up to me 'lil bit. I know it's coming though, I can feel it. I just wanted to talk to you, mom and dad beforehand so it woudn't be 'unexpected' ". His voice was getting weaker but I didn't want to let go quite yet.

"You didn't deserve this. You had plans. Big plans for college", I said continuing to cry.

"Please don't Aubree. None of us can help what happened. Everyone is called home at some point or another. Now's my time, and I think i'm ready". I slowly arose, wiping my eyes.

"You're gonna make an amazing angel Jared. You really are", I said lastly. Giving him a kiss on the forehead before leaving. Mom and dad stayed a bit longer until the nurses insisted Jared needed rest, but that was what they were mostly afraid of. I ran home crying, trying to wrap my mind around the things Jared told me. How could he be ready to die? I know he had to be in pain but why prepare to die? I would never uderstand but I what I did understand was that was more than likely the last time I would see my big brother alive.
